Happy Friday! The weekend is finally here! I was off work today and enjoyed a nice, relaxing day. I started off by sleeping in until 8am and taking my time getting ready. Then I enjoyed a great bowl of rye flakes!
- 1/4 cup POM Wonderful
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup rye flakes
- dried currants
- pecan pieces, carob chips, shaved coconut
My hubby commented that my bowl looked like the filling of a butter tart! That’s how good it tasted, too! :)
After we dropped the kids off at Italian school we set out on a nice long walk. Part of said walk was on a trail where my poor hubby was getting eaten alive by skeeters. They never bother much with me. To keep them off him we decided to run out the rest of the trail….I would guess a good mile. As it was we were gone for almost 2 hours.

I’d say we walked a good 7 miles. We got home with enough time to go seal the deal on the Jeep Liberty! YAY! We’ll be picking it up next Wednesday. Very exciting stuff!
Once the kids were picked up we settled in for lunch. I made a toasted WW bun with a 1/4 cup egg beater, pepper jack cheese and Sabra hummus. On the side was some strained yogurt with strawberry banana jam and a sprinkle of Dorset cereal…
As you can see, things are coming along nicely!
Later in the day DD and I went to run some errands. DS decided he wanted tacos for dinner but all the ground beef was still frozen so I went to the grocery store to buy some. I can never leave with just what I went in for so when I saw this Mocha Almond Fudge coffee creamer I knew it was coming home with me!
An indulgence for sure but it’s not like I use it everyday.
Tacos are not my thing and never have been. Yucky. I decided to make a batch of vegan chilli that I have made before. I found the recipe over at Mara’s place this winter and loved it! I cut the recipe in half this time and still have plenty leftover for lunches. This batch had an onion, garlic, 1 cup bulgur, 2 cups water, a large can of tomato sauce, 1 can each of red kidney beans, lentils and chickpeas, green beans and 3 chipotle’s. I left those out last time and boy, oh boy did they EVER spice it up!
As good as it sounds and looks! I even went back for another bowl. *blush*
After all that food I figured I’d better move around some so I played “baseball” in the driveway with DS for a 1/2 hour. This meant he threw the ball at me while I dodged it and he laughed hysterically! What a kid. They’re down at the park now so I plan to tuck in on the front porch with my book until they get back. I’m aiming for an early night because I want to go to the market tomorrow to stock up on fruit for the week. Hope it doesn’t rain! Enjoy your evening!
Bye for now!!
